Mulberry Harbour


Three days after D-day, two makeshift harbours codenamed “Mulberry A and B”  were towed to and assembled at Omaha and Arromanches beaches. Omaha’s “mulberry” was destroyed on June 19th in a storm. The one in Arromanches (Winston Harbour), initially designed for 3 months, remained in service for 8 months.

100 days after D-day, that harbour saw the disembarkation of 2.5 million personnel, 500,000 vehicles and 4 million tons of supplies. It is still considered to be one of the finest examples of military engineering and is a brutal reminder of the terrible events that took place on the beaches of Normandy.

To imagine our future it is important to understand the present and to know the past.
